SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Nov 21:A Muharram procession was Wednesday taken out in Khanqah-e-Sokhta, Nawa Kadal with scores of devotees participating in it.
The procession was led by senior Hurriyat leader and Islamic scholar Moulana Abbas Ansari while the mourners demanded immediate release of his son and scholar Moulana Masroor Abbas who was detained by police yesterday.
Elsewhere in areas including Zadibal and Hawal also people sought immediate release of Masroor Abbas.
“It is unfortunate that the government doesn’t allow us to take out Muharram processions and it is only because of this intrigue that he (Masroor Abbas) has been detained,” the mourners added.
Talking to Greater Kashmir Moulana Abbas Ansari said: “The restrictions on Muharram procession have punctured the claims of government and exposed how a particular community is victimized and not allowed to perform its religious activities.”
